4wd road is clear and easy to get through. The stream crossing was no problem. Large snow field almost all the way to the summit from ~13,200 - but it is very manageable and firm. Did not encounter any postholing, and didn't need crampons, spikes, or snowshoes. Box Creek couloirs appear to be in prime shape as well.
